Paper Craft Crew Challenge #25

So this is my second week getting in on the action at Paper Craft Crew.

Before I get into the details for my card today I would like to announce that I have some BLOG CANDY!!! I will announce exactly what I am giving away tomorrow but it is sure to be a hit! Hint: Think Stampin Up! Sale-A-Bration Time!!!

So if you would like to be eligible follow my blog and tell all your friends because once I hit 25 followers I will draw a random name and send your treat to you in the mail.

Now on to the task at hand:

I am having fun making cards for these challenges as it actually gets me into my craft room to make something when I don't necessarily have anything specific I need.

Here is the Sketch and Colour Combination for this week.

I'm actually super excited about how my card turned out and will probably make more to have on hand for birthdays. I know everyone usually has a tough time with masculine cards so I may make more just minus the pink. I think the Basic Gray and Olive Green are still great together as a pair.

My card base is Basic Gray cardstock cut at 4.25" x11" folded in half.
The background is Olive Green DSP cut at 4" x 5.25".
The strip on the left is Basic Gray cut at 1" x 5.25 and the pattern was stamped in Versamark Ink using the Border Banter stamp set and the Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then layered onto a strip of Melon Mambo cut at 1.5" x 5.25".
The 3 small squares are Whisper White (3) and Basic Gray (1) cut at 15/16" x 15/16" with the small cupcake from the Carry On stamp set, stamped in Versamark and Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The wrapper was colored using a Melon Mambo Marker and Dazzling Details added to the frosting.  These were then attached to four scalloped squares cut from a Cuttlebug Die I have in my stash.
Finally I added a Gray ribbon and bow from my stash and colored 3 Stampin Up Pearls using my Melon Mambo Marker.

  1. Paulina,
    I love how you used the cupcake from the Carry On stamp set! That is clever! Pretty card.

  2. Paulina, I really love how you did the cupcakes on this card. It would make an awesome masculine card without the pink. Great use of the color combinations for the Color Challenge. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew.
